Well I decided to keep it simple while I oracticed the basic steps of maintain thread control securing amterial and finishing the fly off. Did a few san juan worms, egg patterns and green weenies. Pretty please so far and is has been a lot of fun. I am having trouble getting my eggs small enough and rounding on the bottom. Is there a way to adjust the pressure on bobbin? The old one I have seems a little light and the new one seems a little tight for 6/O thread.

Size #8 Montreal wet fly, May of 1964.

I had a Herter's kit which included claret floss, gold tinsel and a turkey quill. I also had a Herter's tying guide where old man Herter wrote that the Montreal was the fly of choice of the disciples for fishing in the Sea of Galilee.

He was always saying stuff like that. I think old man Herter was drunk a good deal of the time...

Anyway, I tied this Montreal and a #10 McGinty wooly worm that first time I sat down at the vise. Then I rode my bike down to Lake LeBoeuf and fished in my hippers behind the old Lakeside tavern.
I caught a bluegill on the Montreal right away, then nothing for about 15 minutes. So, I switched to the Mcginty wooly worm and caught gillies as fast as I could put it out there.

The Montreal isn't a very good fly...

Zebra midge in 2006. Tied it on a Friday night after getting my first vise. Caught a wild brown on it the next morning on the Codorus at Porters Sidling. What a great feeling.

Was wondering what was the first fly that you ever tied. I will be starting to fly tie after Santa delivers all the goodies that he has promised to bring. I have been watching a bunch of youtube videos and trying to decide what fly to tackle first.


you were asked this and it makes great sense:what flies do you use the most??

the first fly i ever tied was a royal coachman,i think ,but it might have been a leadwing coachman.

i think for the easy to effective ratio it is hard to beat thread body soft hackles or peacock with hen hackle of grizzly,brown,black or game bird.

next easiest to effective fly i can think of is a wooly worm.

Black wooly worm: black chenille body with grizzly hacle palmered in and a red tag for tail. Caught my first trout on this fly I tied and have been hooked ever since:)

yeah,it is a great fly!! i also like a yellow bodied one with grizzly hackle and red hackle fiber tail and a brown body with brown hackle and a red wool tail.i have less luck with black body and black hackle with no tail.,but it is still a nice fly to have in some situations.
